I have finally found a fly fishing forum... :)
I have been flyfishing in Ohio (USA) for over 22 years and use Orvis flyrods...
What is your favorite fly to tie?

Hello Randy! I've got a lot of favorites depending on the species, etc. - and even a few for each species! Here's how it goes for me... I open the flybox. Stare. Go for one... no! That one. Er.... well.... that's better. Man! The one I really need I don't got! ^_^

Welcome aboard.

Heard a funny coincidence... in Cleveland the section where all the establishments of ill repute are located (all cities have'em - the combat zone, red light district, etc) is known as...

the FLATS!

I live for my time down the flats every weekend! }>

Hello and Welcome!!!

Where in Ohio are you from? I've been racing in Cleveland, Dublin, and Lexington...but never fishing.

Let me be the first to say my fav' is the Real Eal. Being a rookie whose knowledge of saltwater flyfishing could fit into a (small) thimble...using the Real Eel, I've been able to catch fish. :)

I am from a small town called Windham, Ohio...
I was raised in Garrettsville, Ohio (about 30 miles east of Akron & 35 miles south of Cleveland)
The closest major river is the Cuyahoga river, then the Mahoning.
Thanks for the welcomes...
